About Detroit Temp Agency Jobs

When a temp job becomes available, they are usually given to temp agencies who will work to fill the position for the company. The temp agency will determine what position needs filled, the hours, the days of the week, what timeline they are expected to fill, and the termination date that the position will no longer be available.

Temp positions are normally offered when someone takes a leave, for example maternity leave to have a baby or when major surgery is needed. The permanent employee will need to be off for a specified amount of time in which the temp worker will fill in. When the permanent worker can come back, the temp job will be discontinued.

You may also see a temp position offered around certain holidays in order to fill large volumes of orders or deliveries that will need to be handled within a certain amount of time. The holidays are always a good example of this and delivery companies like FedEx and UPS may increase their staff for a temporary amount of time.
